Currently, the Cerro Gordo County Department of Public Health is a partner with the Iowa Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program Grant. This grant allows women in Cerro Gordo County between the ages of 40-64 who are under-insured or who have no health insurance, the opportunity to receive pelvic exams, pap smears, mammograms, breast screenings and other health resources. The grant is limited and cannot cover all expenses or serve all women in need. The Women’s Health Fund was established by the Health Department to cover medical expenses women incur in the screening and diagnostic process. The money stays local to serve women in Cerro Gordo County who receive care at our local clinics and facilities.
